I have been at my new role remote for 3 months now. Things are good but I always feel like I’m not doing enough even after doing all my work and asking for more at times. I have this anxiety I could get fired at any moment or my boss/team will think I’m not contributing enough. It’s harder being remote because I feel my boss and team can’t see me and we can’t build those connections in office. Why do I have this anxiety.

For people who recently lateraled, how did you go about negotiating a signing bonus? For context, I’m a rising 6th year in the finance group.
